This is a group which meets on the last Monday of each month at 2pm in the foyer of All Saints’. We produce specialised knitted items such as bonnets designed for use by premature babies, garments for cancer patients with access points for medical equipment, blankets and gloves.

The group also create items to sell for fund raising such as novelty toys, shawls, hats and gloves with an annual boost by meeting every week during Lent. If anyone is interested in joining in or even just helping with supplies please contact Iris via the Church Office using the form on the footer, or details on the Contact page.

Recorder Orchestra (URO)

The Home Group meets on alternate Monday afternoons in the foyer at All Saints to explore and grow our faith together. This is done through bible study, discussion, sharing and praying together, and worship.
The group looks at particular themes, or study particular books of the Bible over a period of weeks. The group provides a time and a safe place to ask questions and to think more deeply about things, debating together and giving us a chance to hear varying views. Our time together helps to keep our faith vibrant as we consider how we can apply biblical truths and examples to our everyday lives. Our studies help us to understand more of the wonderful nature of God and to walk more closely with him through life.
Membership of the home group is open to all. There is a diversity within the group and membership is made up of people at varying stages in their Christian journey. We are all learning. Everyone’s contribution is valued and the fellowship we share enriches and encourages us to live out our faith day by day.
